Social Media Rookie Sayings.

Social Media Rookie Sayings.

3 years ago I would have said you couldn’t pay me to get a Facebook or a twitter. 

As time went on everything I did everywhere I went was social media and one thing I noticed is not to many people really understand how it works I mean REALLY get it.

So I finally accepted Facebook, Pinterest, Google+ Twitter, LinkedIn are all here to stay. 

Now the networks may constantly change like my space aol etc. We are still in the infancy of this industry 10 yrs from now we may have 20 different networks then today. 

I will TELL you this though social media,  and technology in general are not even on training wheels yet.


I remember my first 3 months online  to the first day you tweeted or joined Facebook. I joined Facebook in 2011 when I managed Householdhacker ON YT.

The only reason I did was because I had to keep up with general internet news. 

I remember thinking how silly and awkward it was to have family, friends, neighbors, girlfriends, coworkers etc all in the same place.

About 3 days in I made the decision if I was going to be on the computer I would be very very low key. 3 years ltr IT IS ASTOUNDING how open we ll are whether we realize it or not.

Now we share our life EVERYWHERE.

For me learning all the proper terms was strange. I literally just jumped in made statements that no one knew what they meant.

I thought if I made more then 2 posts on Fb that was way to many and decided I would just dive in head first.

Yes, we do social media for business. I know this though once in awhile ya’ have to laugh a little or even a lot.

I made a list of about 76 things I hear newbs or inexperienced social media managers in the making say here are the ones I thought were best. Do you have  favorite?

 Facebook is only for kids.
 

I don’t have time. I’m too busy selling.
 

None of my clients have a FB


 

I have a Google+ but nobody talks to me. 
Those followers we bought don’t really talk much..
 

My website is sick! We just added a twitter button.

.A hashtag?. 

Why does everyone tweet what they ate for lunch and what is  with all the cats?

What do you mean FB PM me later I’ll call you at 4:00 pm et.  

Did I just tweet? 

You can’t post that word!

Can we get arrested for posting that?

Ok cool chatting ttyl. Seriously, just call me. or I will call you
 

I just read this article saying no one is doing this idea of ordering FB posts already made for us!
 

Why do you I look so tired?
.

 I got a retweet bro I got a retweet!

Social Media is for people who don’t have a life.
 

 What’s my password?
 

 I think I’ll go back to Facebook

What if my competitors see what we say?

 I just found out my best customer is on Twitter and has something called LinkedIn
 

 I’ll just send all my tweets to Facebook & Facebook posts to tweets and will be all set!
.

 Make sure to say social media expert after my name


 

How much do I pay for a  verified badge?

Oh I thought that egg meant I was just new and later it would change

I need to use my real face? Why would I do that?
 

Facebook, nobody is on Facebook anymore.
 

Facebook is AWESOME

. Google+ huh Circle share what the hell are you talking bout.
.

 Be careful out there on that internet. 

I heard there are ripoff scammers.

Blogging?
 

Let my sales reps on social? Are you kidding?
 

My sales reps don’t have time for social. They are too bust getting leads.
.

 We can’t let people comment on our blog. What if someone says something bad?

 Call to action? What action?
 

We are def social media experts. We have a Twitter and Facebook account we check weekly.
 

I have 92 twitter followers I am bad ass at this

 I got 5 Facebook likes on that post this is gonna be easy
 

I seriously think Facebook might save our business this year!
     
You mean it’s not just about getting Facebook likes?
 

Will you plllleeeaaase retweet this?

Did I miss anything that you said or hear a lot?

58 Things Social Media Newbies Say & Maybe You Said Too!? image iStock 000016170219XSmallThere comes a time in life when you must acknowledge social media, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn are all here to stay. Yes, the social network platforms may change. Facebook will eventually become the Myspace of yesterday. However, one thing is certain, social media, mobile phones, iPad evolution and technology in general is not going away.

At one point in time we all still are, were or will be newbies at something. It’s funny to think back to the first day you tweeted or joined Facebook. I joined Facebook in 2006 when I worked at Sun Microsystems. We were required to get on Facebook in support of an internal big marketing conference. I remember thinking how awkward it was to be so transaparent and have everyone from family, friends, neighbors, girlfriends, past boyfriends, teachers, boss and hubby all in one place! Yowza!

My how things have changed. Now we share our life, our ups and downs in 140 characters on Twitter, in pictures on Pinterest, on blog posts like this and of course on Facebook.

Learning all the bits, bytes, lingo and lango is not always easy. The best thing to do is ask the questions you have, answer the ones you know and have fun. Yes, we do social media for business. However, once in awhile ya’ have to laugh a little or even a lot.

Below are some quotes I have heard many newbies say including some folks close to me in life and business. I hope you can have some fun with this and add your own. We’re working on a video to incorporate some of them with a couple clients. If your suggestion makes it in the video, we’ll give you credit for it in the video and accompanied description!

Note: By no means is this post meant to make fun of social newbies. We love newbies around these parts. We were all a newbie at some point and will be a newbie tomorrow when the next new shiny bright object launches!
